The democrats have unholstered their microscopes this week, and are attempting to document every single nook and cranny of the alleged wrongdoing of the President by a whistleblower from within the West Wing.
News of an official whistleblower complaint just days ago prompted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to launch what the left is calling an “official impeachment inquiry”, despite previous assertions by House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler that such a probe had already begun.
This “official” inquiry has now supercharged the paranoia of the liberal left. Every syllable spoken on the subject by White House officials is under intense scrutiny. Every ellipsis a chance to infer something nefarious.
Now, the placement of the record of a phone call between US President Donald Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart is part of the supposed mystery.
The whistleblower says White House officials told them the conversation on July 25 between Trump and Zelenskiy was removed from the computer system that is typically used for such records of calls with foreign leaders.
Instead, the whistleblower writes, the transcript was loaded into a separate electronic system that is used only for information that is of an “especially sensitive nature.” One White House official described that as an abuse of the secure system because there was nothing “remotely sensitive” on the phone call from a national security perspective, the whistleblower said.
What the left is calling a ‘coverup’ may very well be a simple case of executive privilege – a power of the presidency that the democratic party has been loathe to discuss over the course of this latest investigation.
